secretary of state for secretary clinton and dana loesch kee, host of the dana show. let me start with you. p.j. crowley. i'm getting a little weary, with the relentless attacks first on susan rice and then on hillary clinton. there's a whisper of misogyny to it i think, and it's getting pretty, i think, incestuous and very washington-orientated rather than in the national interests of america. what do you think? >> well, i think there are legitimate questions that still need to be answered. and as hillary clinton said today, the fbi is still working on the investigation. director mueller was in both libya and tunisia recently. i get disappointed when people give half of the story. the senator just said, you know, while this guy's been released. but as hillary clinton said today, yes, but he's under constant surveillance within tunisia, they're following the rule of law, and as more evidence becomes available they're fully prepared to act on him again. so i think, you know, as hillary clinton said dramatically, our focus here now is to bring these guys to justice but also to understand ben

. dana bash has been following this. she's going to join our crime and justice correspondent. first to you, dana, on capitol hill, theatrics are often times discussed as part of the problem when discussing the military-style assault weapons in the first place and there will be no shortage of theatrics, right? >> that's right. you can see behind me what is going to happen. i counted ten assault weapons that are on display that they decided was critical to display because they want to make a point. they want to show these and to argue that these kinds of weapons are simply not needed in the hands of every day americans. you can probably see here, there are two lines of ropes. that is because it is not legal for these weapons -- never mind being in the united states capitol but also to be in the d.c. -- in d.c. it breaks the d.c. gun laws. so they got special permission from the d.c. police office and also from the capitol police and there are a lot of capitol police officers here. those are the rules to make sure the guns are back there and we are not allowed back there either. that r
tapper has been watching this with me. dana bash is on capitol hill. this is vintage hillary clinton. she responded to the direct accusations, the challenges but the republicans especially -- and we'll get to this shortly -- john mccain and rand paul were tough on her. they were not backing down. >> that's right. republicans were focused on, one, the administration specifically the united nations ambassador susan rice initially in the sunday show appearances, on all five sunday shows that sunday but also an initial discussion about what happened in benghazi, the word was that this was not a terrorist attack, this was a spontaneous protest because of the anti-islam video which of course turns out not to have been the case and a lot senators were focused on why were these talking points false. johnson said dr. rice was purposefully misleading the american public. dr. rice said she was not, she was using the talking points used by the intelligence committee and no effort to mislead. she was providing as much information as she knew at the time. the other information by senator rand paul talk
